The Atelier Mercadal brand history stretches all the way back to 1998 when designer Marie-Laure Mercadal launched her accessories line. The brand aesthetic walks a delicate line between low key professionalism and ultra femininity and there are plenty of contrasts, from strict to soft and chic to easygoing elegance. The designer's many trips to Asia have inspired a number of the collections, from bags to jewellery. The boots from the brand include flat over the knee boots, purple stiletto ankle boots and wedge boots, as well as designs with golden studs. The range also includes plenty of inventive styles, such as shoe boots with a brogue front.
